Fall nail art! Autumn leaves on glitter gradient

Hey babes! It feels SO weird to be doing fall designs, because the weather was AMAZING today! Me and the sun were best buds and it felt like summer. BUT I had this fall design burn a hole in my imagination, so I thought I'd just make it and show you, and put my bottle of Picture Polish Malt Teaser to good use. Oh and I have a video tutorial! Come and see, come and see!

I thought at first that maybe this design would be too simple for me, but I've kind of fallen in love with it actually :D It was pretty easy to paint so I'll show you guys how to do that in a video tutorial, if you would just scroll down a bit... a bit more.... liiiiittle bit further.... there you go!
All you need is a brown polish for the background, a gold(-ish) glitter polish, I used China Glaze I'm Not Lion, a piece of sponge, acrylic paint and a detail brush.
Apply your base color and let it dry thoroughly. Put some gold glitter polish on a small piece of sponge, and dab it on your nail starting at the tip and going up. Apply top coat after this to make a smooth surface to paint on, I use Glisten&Glow HK Girl top coat (I buy this from Hypnotic Polish) because it's nice and thick, so it smooths over the glitters in one coat.

First you'll want to paint the basic shape of the leaves in one color. The next part is basically just winging it: paint some accents in another color and add veins. When you think it looks good, top coat and you're done!
